This is where my students go to learn about nitrox diving. I recommend this book to all of them. It explains nitrox better than I ever could, it talks about safety and equipment and includes easy to follow planning examples. To dive nitrox you need to be educated first and this book explains it all.

If you dive nitrox, or even if you've only thought about it, then this book is for you. It gives you the straight scoop on all your questions about nitrox and safety. I explain what nitrox is and how it works, and provide the latest insights into concerns like oxygen toxicity. For the certified nitrox diver, the easy-to-follow examples will help you sort through all the planning, including both the tables and raw math, to figure out maximum operating depths, equivalent air depths, and best nitrox mixes. The book provides insights into equipment for nitrox diving, requirements for oxygen cleaning, technology used to mix nitrox, plus important safety tips for nitrox diving. This book gives you the information you need for a fraction of what you'll pay for other manuals.
